NAME

Caenorhabditis elegans

DESCRIPTION

Caenorhabditis elegans is a species of soil-dwelling nematode (roundworm) used as a model organism in molecular genetics and developmental biology. It is predominantly hermaphroditic (can self-fertilize) and it is transparent, allowing the position and fate of every cell in the body to be mapped.
